Over eight thousand Osteopathic

of this kind" in the state, or In the
country, for that matter.-v it.--
W. T. IUgdcra is still In the active
work but he is ably assisted by his
son, Lloyd I Rigdon, who has . been
taking, an . active part for. several
years. '-- M, :!-'

There are associations, ' connected
therewith that are tender, when one
remembers intimate occasions de
manding the facilities afforded there.
